On the agenda for tonight's Town Meeting is the Town Council creating a NEW unnecessary position of Town Clerk for Lyla. How can this even POSSIBLY be considered? They are threatening lay-offs for KPD and KFD yet they create a position for her? This must be addressed at some point, this is beyond comprehension.

No it's not a new position. It's the Assistant/Deputy to the Municipal Clerk. Longstanding title. Before Lyla, there was Jill as Assistant/Deputy before she became Clerk; going back further Doreen did it before she became Clerk. The Clerk's office is now 3 people: the Clerk and the Assistant, and a typist. That office has historically had 4 people.

Congratulations to Pat and Lyla.

it's not really a "New" position per se, the Town HAS to have a certified Municipal/Town Clerk, that is a constitutional requirement from the state IIRC> When the last Town Clerk retired, D'Arco took on those duties as he was certified. With his retirement, the town had no choice but to appoint a new clerk. It's actually pretty much a neutral hire with Martello taking D'arco's spot, and continuing his duties as Code Official, and THAT position not being filled.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if we are "holding the line" on taxes, by cutting services, doesn't that still amount to an increase? You know, less for the same amount (or more), would be less bang for the buck.

And how the hell is it prudent to start with public safety. I know they want shared sacrifice, so how about 4 council people (instead of 8), geographically, the town is not that big that 4 people couldn't handle the job. Or, how about a full time Mayor, and do away with the BA. I would feel better if the Mayor was more hands on with the goings on it Town. Of course, this would end the Mayor and Council's ability to blame the BA for unpopular decisions.

And, the big question, the one that was dodged by the Mayor, HOW MANY LAWYERS ARE WE PAYING FOR AND AT WHAT COST TO US!!!!!!!!

BTW, some people have said the Town judge reduces almost all fines, perhaps these violations need to be paid in FULL to help fill the budget gaps.
